Sen. Frank Wagner, R-Virginia Beach, says he hasn’t made up his mind about whether he’ll seek re-election this year, when every seat in the state Senate and House of Delegates is up.
“I’m weighing all my options,” he told a Mercury reporter Thursday. “I’ve made no decision.”
Wagner, chairman of the powerful Senate Commerce and Labor Committee, has been in the Senate since 2001. Before that, he served in the House of Delegates from 1992 to 2001.
Wagner unsuccessfully sought the GOP nomination for governor in 2017.
The 7th District includes parts of Virginia Beach and Norfolk and went for Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam in 2017 over GOP nominee Ed Gillespie.
